Punta Arenas

An erstwhile hub of the sheep wool industry, Punta Arenas has evolved into a gateway of sorts for hikers, cruise ship passengers, and adventure travelers heading out on the windswept lands of Chile's extreme southern reaches. Though practically on the edge of the world, Punta Arenas is an expansive urban center whose population boasts a surprising degree of ethnic diversity, including a large population ethnic Croats. Take a small tour of Punta Arenas to wander the city's busy streets and explore its array of churches, shops, squares, and museums, all set along the shoreline of the Strait of Magellan. Keep your eyes open near the water and you may even spot a local penguin clan. Punta Arenas is in Magallanes Region.

Where to stay in Punta Arenas

Punta Arenas boasts a huge selection of hotel options within its bustling sprawl, which range from low-key restored manors and homes to modern lodges and high-rises packed with amenities. You'll find an array of mid-range accommodations in the city's downtown area, within a few blocks of the waterfront and river. This gives you easy access to many of the city's most popular attractions and places to visit. However, Punta Arenas features very few true budget accommodations due to the large tourist industry and huge influx of cruise ship passengers that frequent town.
